“SHARING GRACE AND TRUTH FROM THE PSALMS ABOUT TWO GREAT BLESSINGS FROM OUR LORD”

“SHARING GRACE AND TRUTH FROM THE PSALMS ABOUT TWO GREAT BLESSINGS FROM OUR LORD”

Psalm 23:6 “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the LORD Forever.”

Taken from today’s reading in “The Year Bible” by Zondervan.

1. Here David two major blessings we have from Jesus our shepherd.

Psalm 23:6 “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the LORD Forever.”

#1. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life.

We notice here that David was certain of what he was saying.

He said, “Surely” which comes from a word meaning to be good, be pleasing, be joyful, be beneficial, be favorable, be happy, be right.

David had been taught by the Lord about these blessings.
The goodness and mercy of God follow all of God’s children, all the day’s of their lives as well.
God’s lovingkindness follows us.
God’s mercy, I.E His not giving us what we deserve, follows us daily as well.

#2. Psalm 23:6 “And I will dwell in the house of the LORD Forever.”

Whereas, the previous blessings of goodness and mercy were what was following David, here David is looking to the future and what was waiting for him.

David was assured that once this life was over, that God had a dwelling place for him forever.
We know that David is talking about heaven.
Heaven is God’s house.
Houses are where people live.
In this case, God’s people are going to live in God’s house forever and ever.

Some additional thoughts:

1. God has “unfailing love” for us.

2. God’s goodness and mercy are said to be pursuing the people of God all the days of their lives.

3. God is to be thanked for His relentless pursuit of our lives, wanting to bless them with goodness and mercy.

4. God assures us that He has this house, i.e heaven, and once we arrive their, it’s our eternal residence.

A prayer:

Our Father in heaven, thank You for Your goodness, and Your mercy. We do not know how many days we will live on this earth, but we do know what is following us day by day. And, what hope You have given us Lord. There is no one like You, and there is nothing that is greater than the salvation and future hope we have in You. Thank You.
In Jesus’ name, amen.
